a *bookmarker* art show!

An Open Call To all International Artists:

You are invited to participate in an International Bookmarker Art show.

The Plainsboro Library of Plainsboro , New Jersey , USA , is sponsoring an arts festival called Cultural Crossroads.
We are asking mail artists from around the world to submit a decorated bookmarker (or two!)
to help us celebrate the connection and community that mail artists create by sharing their work.
as they are inspired by your amazing creative addition. Lots of children from our very diverse community
will both see your work, and create their own at our festival.
We are thrilled to be building bridges of connection from all over the world to our corner here in Central New Jersey .

Since this theme of Cultural Crossroads represents diversity, we are especially delighted
to have an international representation in this bookmarker show.

Please decorate a white bookmarker in any way you would like – drawing or painting, collage, words, or whatever moves you.
If you like, you can incorporate our theme of "Cultural Crossroads".

Please mail back the bookmark (no later than June 1, 2008) to:

Cultural Crossroads Bookmarkers
c/o Emily Townsend/Artstation
148 Monmouth Street
Hightstown , NJ 08520

We must receive the bookmarkers before the end of June 2008,
in order to be included in the show.

We will be selling all the bookmarkers to help us raise funds
to build a new library.

Thank you so much for your creative participation – and if you cannot help,
please feel free to cut and paste and pass this notice along
to someone who might want to!

Deadline Extended - Sender Receives -March 17th

This exhibition will continue to break down the division between the mailbox and the gallery. To that end, Niagara County Community College Art Gallery is seeking submissions for an upcoming exhibition, aiming to display the myriad manifestations of mail art. Artists working in all media are encouraged to participate. The topic and content of each piece is solely the choice of the artist. Artists are asked to produce one piece of mail art and send it to guest curator Becky Moda. Your work will be displayed in a cataloged group exhibition in the Spring. After the exhibition closes, each participating artist will receive via mail the work of another artist. “Senders receive,” as mail artists say.

The mail art movement is uniquely populist and non-commercial, involving non-traditional distribution methods and the potential for global reach. Let's breathe new life into this fascinating movement, which predated and in some ways predicted the artist networking boom enabled by the internet.

It is asked that the artists adhere to the following guidelines:

1. Please send one piece of mail art to: Mail Art, NCCC Gallery, Niagara County Community College, 3111 Saunders Settlement Road, Sanborn, New York 14132-9460 by February 14, 2008.

2. The mail art can take any shape, in two or three dimensions. Pieces can expand when opened, but must be easily re-mailed for less than five dollars.
For more information please email beckymoda@gmail.com or visit http://nccmailart.blogspot.com
